Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez feels confident in his relationship with club owner Roman Abramovich.

Benitez held productive talks with Roman Abramovich on Sunday after the Chelsea owner returned to London from his holiday in St Barts.

The manager said: "Without giving away too many details, the owner was really pleased with the result against Arsenal (a 2-1 win on Sunday).

"He has ideas and I do too. We share ideas and it's fine. We explain to each other what we're trying to do."

Addressing Chelsea's form, Benitez added: "Could we do a bit better? Yes. Could we have won games we lost? Yes. But the team is progressing and if you talk with the players they say we're going in the right direction."
